This Is WAR. This Is SACRIFICE. This Operation Is TERMINATED.

Below is the trailer for Unthinkable. I’d never heard of Unthinkable until I saw this trailer. It comes from director Gregor Jordan, and if you haven’t heard of him, it’s only because his films don’t deserve to be seen, despite his ability to nab fairly high-caliber stars (The Informers, Buffalo Soldiers).

To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have made it to second number four of this trailer if Michael Sheen hadn’t been in second number two. Michael Sheen has one of the best voices in cinema, although Gregor Jordan seems content to waste it with a lot of yelling. Sam Jackson, Carrie Ann Moss, Brandon Routh, and Martin Donovan also star. They also yell. Dumb things. Really fucking dumb things. Like, “If those bombs go off, THERE WILL BE NO CONSTITUTION.”

Count the overcooked yell-y cliches. I ran out of toes and fingers at around the 62nd second mark.
